You know that feeling of a new pair of jeans. They just feel so... well, new. They are stiff, scratchy, different. I absolutely hate shopping for jeans. But ultimately, once we find a good fit, a simple pair of new jeans can give you a boost as good as Botox (Let's assume!).
My daughter wears the same pair of jeans to school every day. I've been trying to buy her a new pair, to no avail. She finally explained, "Mommy, when you get me a new pair, then I won't want to wear these anymore. And this pair is still my favorite." So wise.
Eventually if she doesn't completely wear them out (they already have holes in the knees), she will out grow them.
Replacing jeans that are too tight is straightforward. But the signs of outgrowing other parts of our lives are more subtle.
What is your pair of jeans? What do you keep 'wearing' out of comfort although it may not be the best fit?
Maybe it's small, like a hair style or playlist. Maybe it's bigger, like a career, a belief, a lifestyle, habit, or relationship.
May I invite us all to be observant enough to receive our internal cues for change beyond a tight waistline. . . . agitation, avoidance, listening to the same mental script, fatigue, tightness of breath, lethargy. What change might you be ready for?
Maybe it’s at least time to start window shopping.
